Morris Foundation Veterinary Student Scholarships

Type of funding: Veterinary Student Scholarships

The Veterinary Student Scholar (VSS) program is a competitive program that provides veterinary students the opportunity to become involved in mentored research that advances the health and/or welfare of dogs, cats, equids or wildlife. The VSS program awards stipends up to $5,500 to veterinary students who are selected by their institution to participate in clinical or basic animal health research.

Morris Animal Foundation is committed to training the next generation of veterinary researchers. These awards are competitive, and each institution is encouraged to select and submit the strongest student projects based on scientific merit, potential animal health impact and opportunity for the student scholars to develop veterinary research skills.
